COCHAIRMEN BAER AND COHN REPORT

Melvin H. Baer and Lewis E.
Cohn, 1975 Campaign cochair-
men, report that 40 solicitation
meetings have already been
scheduled during the next two
months for the 1975 Campaign.
Organizational meetings of
the High Rise Division, with Ot-
to Stieber as chairman, have
been conducted daily so that ev-

"It Is not always easy to be
Jewish, and we are all part of
the anguish and the Joy of be-
ing who we are," he added.
"The pain of a holocaust, the
for the protection of the State
of Israel, make us aware of our
blood of the young men who die
death of innocent people at Ktr-
yat Shemonah, Ma'alot, and the
Judaism. But ao does the joy
of having a State of Israel, and
the pleasure of seeing Jews from
oppressed lands come out of
bondage into freedom."

Communist elements to my way
In the view of Maitland Rev.
Arthur Froehlich, pastor of the
Bible Presbyterian Church there,
the "undesirable elements" are
those who take the U.S. Supreme
Court ruling seriously banning
mandatory prayers in public
THE RULING came more
than a decade ago.
Still, there is a Florida statute
calling for the teaching of
"Christian virtues" and related
"devotional exercises" in the
schools, and Rev. Froehlich sees
his "holy war" as another aspect
of the recent West Virginia text-
book war, which in his view in
volved "attacks on good Christian
At the center of the struggle
were hearings that opened before
a federal judge in Orlando last
week designed to strike down
school board policies permitting
the continuing infraction of the
Supreme Court ruling.

Abba Ebon To
Speak Feb. 3
Abba Eban, one of Israels
most distinguished statesmen,
will speak at Temple Sinai, Hol-

Mr. Eban played a key role in
the diplomatic field for Israel,
both in the year immediately
preceding her independence and
throughout her history as a sov-
ereign nation. He first achieved
worldwide prominence as Offi-
cial Liaison between the Jewish
community of Palestine and the
United Nations committees
which deliberated the Palestine
problem in Geneva and at Lake
Mr. Eban collaborated in the
preparation of the Jewish case
which was brought before the
General Assembly and the Se-
curity Council and himself pre-
sented a part of the Jewish plea
which resulted in the establish-
ment of the State of Israel.
In the ensuing years, the Is-
raeli leader gained international
acclaim as his country's Ambas-
sador to the United States, a

$1 A WEEK COULD SOI VI ECONOMIC WOES
Jewish Families Here Urged
To Buy More Israeli Products
If every Jew in the United
States would spend a dollar a
week on Israeli imports, the fi-
nancial picture in Israel would
be considerably brightened, ac-
cording to Yehoshua Meshulah,
a retired Tel Aviv journalist now
living in Florida.
Following the Yom Kippur
War, the "Buy Israel" office
organized a publicity campaign
in the Miami area to stimulate
the demand for Israeli products
in order to strengthen that
country's economy. Cooperating
in the project were most of the
Jewish organizations in the area.
Mr. Meshulah now wishes to
launch the "Buy Israel" project,
sponsored by the Jewish Market
Organization, the Jewish Agen-
cy, and the Ministry of Com-
merce and Industry in Israel, to
all American communities.
Every Jewish family is urged
to buy something Israeli, such
as wines and liqueurs, clothing,
gloves, bags, leather goods,
foods, tires, jewels, stamps and/
or coins, cosmetics and perfumes,
religious items, toys, records and
books, at least once a week in
order to help Israel's export
trade recover from the effects
of the October 1973 War.
In Hollywood, the Community
Relations Committee of the Jew-
ish Federation of South Broward
will discuss the proposed "Buy
Israel" project at its monthly
luncheon, Thursday noon, Jan.
23, at Temple Solel. Mr. Me-
shulach will be guest speaker.

ties for many Jewish causes. Mr. Hess has
been involved with the Hillcrest Community

The Benefits of Detente
Kremlinology is still a very inexact science.
First, Leonid Brezhnev cancelled his trip to Cairo be-
cause of the rift between the Soviet Union and President
Sadat over Sadat's presumed preference for Henry Kis-
singer's step-by-step resolution of the problems between
Egypt and Israel.
Then he had a bad cold.
Then he had bronchitis or a touch of the flu.
Then he was not going to give sophisticated arms to
Egypt until Sadat made some promises about letting all
those Soviet "technicians" return there that Sadat bounced
out almost two years ago.
Now he has leukemia, and the latest Kremlinology
Intelligence is that the first major benefit of detente will
be the availability to Brezhnev of American medical know-
how in the treatment of this mortal disease.
Which is about as inexact as anything can get, con-
sidering the batting average for cancer control in either
Back in 1962, Black Martinique psychiatrist Franz

At issue are the hearings that opened Wednesday in
Orlando over the Florida law requiring the teaching of
"Christian virtues" in the schools.
That law was passed before the United States Su-
preme Court issued a ruling banning mandatory prayer
in Florida's public schools.
Maitland Rev. Arthur Froehlich will have none of it.
In his view, "attacks on good Christian moral teach-
ings" are launched by "Communist elements, to my way
That means just about anybody, including more per-
ceptive Catholics, Protestants and Jews, who believe that
the practice of one's faith is a function of the home and
he practice of one's faith is a function of he home and
church or synagogue.
It also means that Rev. Froehlich doesn't care what
he says so long as he can discredit people who don't
agree with him. Which, of course, in the end will mean
what we warned about in the beginning the dividing of
faiths, families and human decency.
Women's Council Week
The National Council of Jewish Women annually
celebrates Council Week across the country, and in Mi-
ami, Council Week will highlight the Greater Miami Sec-
tion's annual membership meeting Wednesday noon, Jan.
15, at the Seville Hotel.
Despite the growing mood of pessimism gripping the
nation, the 100,000 members of the National Council of
Jewish Women continue to dedicate themselves to the
organization's programs in a positive mood.
Recalling Eleanor Roosevelt's observation that "It is
better to light one candle than to curse the darkness," Mrs.
Judy Gilbert, president of the Greater Miami Section,
suggests that of course Council women recognize the
enormity of the social problems facing them and our
country as a whole.
"Yet, rather than buckle under their weight, we work
at selected tasks with enthusiasm, intensity and patience."
And so, in the face of a growing malaise into which
the nation seems to be slipping, Council, for example:
Takes great pride in its recent survey and pending
book on Juvenile Justice;
Joins in support of the enormous task involved in
the exodus of Jews from the Soviet Union;
Continues its programs that benefit a variety of
projects in Israel;
Remains ever vigilant of the system of Jewish ethics
in support of human dignity as the most important of all
Inerested? That, on a small scale of a much grander
design, is what Council Week is all about and also
that annual membership meeting at the Seville.
It's Quality and Not Just Cash
A LAIN* Lombard has said that,
to help solve the Greater
Miami Philharmonic's economic
crisis, he would conduct the rest
of the season for free if neces-
That would be a bad deal.
Things are bad enough now.
They do not, by what may on
its face seem to be his Gallic
gallantry, then to be compound-
ed by our foolhardiness, have to
be made worse.
WHAT I am critical about in
the orchestra now its artis-
tic "growth," its management,
its bravura conductor still in his
emotional kneepants, the consti-
tuency of its citizens' board
I was critical about three years
ago, as well.
Only then, the doyens of the
diminuendo dado, holding the
Maestro high like some magni-
ficently decorative continental
catch, pilloried me, and rather
viciously as I recall, for saying
of him exactly the same things
they have finally brought them-
selves to say of him now. Or al-
FOR EXAMPLE, one member
of the board accused me of in-
consistency: At the conclusion
of Lombard's first season, I
praised him. At the conclusion
of the second, I damned him.
Another member charged that,
in the beginning, I applauded
the Maestro for his European
concert tours which could only
enlarge his experience and re-
dound to the benefit and the
glory of the Philharmonic here.
But later, according to this
Nostradamus, I was writing that
his European tours were per-
sonal ego trips intended to bene-
fit his own glory, to advance his
own professional standing abroad
at the expense of Miami's need
for his services which he was
contractually obliged to fulfill,
but which he seemed increasing-
ly to be sloughing off onto ex-
pensive guest conductors or in
the name of sudden bouts of
A THIRD member, this one a
musicologist of some fair re-
pute, privately agreed with all
my critical observations and en-
couraged me to publish them
"for the good of serious music
in South Florida," but publicly
joined in the clamor for my
head when I did.
As to the charge of inconsis-
tency: In his first season with
the Miami Philharmonic, Maes-
tro Lombard achieved a memor-
able transformation in the or-
chestra. It developed suddenly,
almost too precipitously, from a
collection of amateur forces in-
to a group of daring players
with daring repertoire just short
of professional standing. And I
BIT BY the end of the sec-
ond season, it was apparent that
the Maestro had shot his bolt.
There would be no more devel-
opment because he had no more

Quick to Assume Congress Liberal
By JOSEPH ALSOP
Los Angeles Times Syndicate
WASHINGTON The current-
ly fashionable doctrine is that
the new Congress elected by the
Democratic landslide will be the
most leftward-leaning Congress
this town has even seen. But like
so many fashionable doctrines,
this can easily turn out to be
The most conspicuous feature
of this new Congress will be the
huge increase in the Democratic
majority in the House. But it has
to be remembered that just about
every member who has been add-
ed to the former Democratic ma-
jority was elected from a for-
mer Republican district.
AS SPEAKER Carl Albert has
been pointing out to those who
are close to him, this obviously
means that a great majority of
these additions to the Democratic
majority have behind them elec-
torates that are reasonably con-
servative by current standards.
Any Democrat with a reason-
ably conservative, formerly Re-
publican electorate is also all
but certain to be a middle-of-the-
By now Speaker Albert has
talked with all but six of his
party's new House members. He
is a notable middle-of-the-road
man himself. He's been much en-
couraged by what he has found
in this marathon series of chats;
and he has been passing the word
that "It's a good idea, nowadays,
to remember 14B."
THE REASONS for remember-
ing 14B at this juncture are both
cogent and logical. To begin with,
this clause of the Taft Hartley
Act has always been the special
bugbear of organized labor, since
it comes close to encouraging the
states to pass "right to work"
laws intended to weaken unions.
Organized labor therefore
mounted an enormous effort to
repeal 14B during the 89th Con-
This was the Congress elected
in the midst of the Republican
Party's disaster with Sen. Berry
Goldwater; and the Democratic
majority in the House in that
Congress was a couple of seats
higher than the same majority
will be in the new Congress.
PRESIDENT LYNDON John-
son also gave labor's drive
against 14B his supposedly all-
powerful support. The Demo-
cratic leaders of both House and
Senate were equally active.
But despite the combined ef-
forts of the President, the offi-
cial congressional leaders and
save favorite social programs.
Certain aspects of the organi-
zation of the House may also be
altered by the altered balance of
the Democratic Caucus. One
likely target is the peculiar or-
ganization of the Ways and Means
But on the other side of the
balance sheet, there are items
that will upset many liberals.
One such is the possibility of
another antibusing bill based on
new hearings by the House Edu-
cation and Labor Committee that
will be aimed to prove what ij
true, alasthat the kind of bus-
ing causing all the trouble in
3oston does not really help to
teach minority children to read
and write and figure.
IN SHORT, the prospect is for
a mixed bag, with the main dan-
gers an attack on the national
defense and a recession-spurred
drive to pile "reflation" on top
of runaway inflation. To this gen-
eral prospect, however, one must
add two footnotes
First of all, the Democrats will
have a more top-heavy majority
in a House that was already less
well disciplined than the House
has ever been for at least two
TOP-HEAVY majorities always
tend to produce riotous behavior
by individual members or groups
So the Democratic leaders will
have a fearful time persuading
the followers not to make a pub-
lic spectacle of themselves.
Second, the country is all but
certain to receive some fearful
shocks in the next year. Every
thing in Congress will then de-
pend upon how the country re-
sponds to these shocks._______

repealed. It did not suit the new
Democrats from ex-Republican
districts to go that far.
This does not mean, of course,
that the next Congress will be
solidly middle of the road in the
style of Speaker Albert.
AS A combat veteran of World
War II, Speaker Albert has al-
ways believed in a vigorous bi-
partisan foreign policy and a
strong national defense. But the
United States is now beginning
to show the kind of generation
gap on these subjects that
caused the war inviting weakness
of Britain and France in the time
of Adolf Hitler's rise in Germany.

Ql'ESTIOX: What is the cus-
tom or religious practice requir-
ing a widow to take off the
shoe of her husband's brother?
ANSWER: This is connected
with the Biblical law of Levirate
Marriage, the practice of mar-
rying the widow of one's brother
who died childless (from the
Latin, Levir, which means hus-
If the brother refuses to mar-
ry his brother's widow, the rite
of Halitzah is prescribed.
Halitzah is a Hebrew word
moaning the ceremony of taking
off the shoe of the Levir.
The Levirate Marriage and
the Rite of Halitzah are spelled
out in detail in Deuteronomy,
Chapter 25, Verses 5-10.
"When brothers dwell togeth-
er and one of them dies and
leaves no son, the wife of the
deceased shall not be married to
a stranger, outside the family.
Her husband's brother shall
unite with her and take her as
his wife, performing the Levir's
duty. The first son that she
bears shall be accounted to the
dead brother, that his name may
not be blotted out in Israel.
"But if the man does not want
to marry his brother's widow,
his brother's widow shall appear
before the elders in the gate and
declare, 'My husband's brother
ref ses to establish a name in
Israel for his brother; he will
rot perform the duty of a Levir.'
The elders of his town shall then
summon him and talk to him.
"If he insists, saying, 'I do not
choose to marry her,' his broth-
er's widow shall go up to him
in the presence of the elders,
pull the sandal off his foot, spit
in his face, and make this decla-
ration: "Thus shall be done to
the man who will not build up
his brother's house!' And he
shall go in Israel by the name of
'the family of the unsandaled
By Talmudic times the custom
of Levirate Marriage gradually
declined. The Rabbis encouraged
the Biblical provision for its
evasion, the rite of Halitzah.
In modern Israel the Rabbis
established that the obligation
of Halitzah takes precedence
over Levirate Marriage. In 1953
legislation was passed that a
brother who refuses to give Ha-
litzah to his deceased brother's
widow is liable to imprisonment.
Liberal Judaism dispensed
with the duty of Levirate Mar-
riage and the necessity of Ha-

Israel stands alone its only hope for survival is that the Jew-
ish people will do everything within their power to keep it strong.
There is a direct relationship between the amount of money that is
given to support Israel and the amount of blood that may be spilled.
In a recent article in the New York Times, Elie Wlesel, tho
philosophical and mystical writer on Judaism, Israel, and the Holo-
caust, expressed for the first time a depressive opinion about the
future of Judaism and Israel. He offered the opinion that the world
might sacrifice the State of Israel to ensure its oil supply.
Israel can be the fulfillment of 2,000 years of Jewish existence.
By that I do not mean that it is the homeland of all Jews, but
rather a refuge for those Jews who need it and wish it, and just
as important, the continuation of the light of ethical and moral
values, "a light unto all the nations of the world."
What is the meaning of Jewish survival if it Is not to set tho
example of justice and freedom for a!i people? Israel can serve as
the nucleus of a centrifugal force to aid in the development of this
concept, but for it to do so it needs to survive, and it can only
survive through strength.
What the Jews of America give to the i>eoplc of Israel has a
strong relationship to the quantity and quality of American gov-
ernmental support. During this time of world crisis our aid must
be greater than ever before. We are partners, one with the other.
As our 1975 Campaign moves ahead we must constantly remember
this partnership. The strength of the American Jewish community;
and its support of Israel will help ensure that our grandchildren
will know and have pride in the fact that they are Jews.
Our support of the campaign is insurance for our future.
As I see it it's a good investment.

I should like to devote most of
this column to a very special in-
sight on the College Scene in Is-
rael. With the permission of Is-
rael Magazine, The Israel Inde-
pendent Monthly, I should like
to reprint several sections of an
article entitled "Quiet on the
Campus," by Anita Gillick.
'Israel's university students
are adrift. Many are angry.
Some are bitter. The misrepre-
sentations and miscalculations of
October 1973. and after, pro-
voked currents of uncertainty.
All is not as it should be in Is-
rael. Yet, the campus is quiet.
Where is the indignant voice of
Israel's future leadersthe uni-
"Israel is a democracy. The
right to protest is freely given.
Eight thousand joined in one
mass demonstration of public
opinion in Jerusalem. But the
Hebrew University alone has
over 10,000 students; and there
are five other major universi-
ties: Tel Aviv, Bar Ilan, Univer-
sity of the Negev, Haifa Univer-
sity and the Technion.
"Who is the Sabra that car-
ries the Israeli fighting spirit
onto the battiegroupnd and loses
it on the homefield? Today's 'av-
erage' Israeli student entered
university in his twenties, after
completing his obligatory Army
servicetwo years for the girls,
three years for the boys his
18-year-old burst of bravado and
individuality tempered by the
disciplinary indoctrination of
Army life. He may have spent
an additional year or two work-
ing to earn money for his tui-
"Adolt, perhaps married with
family obligations, he fills the
six-day work week with 25-to-38
credit hours and generally a full-
time job. The army still influ-
ences him, because men are li-
able for duty approximately two
months of every year. He may
be called up in the middle of the
semester, but would not be ex-
cused from normal completion
of his studies and examination.
"The Israel collegiate is more
mature than his European and
American counterparts, and
more serious. He knows what he
wantsto get his degree, which
will mean a better job. Study is
a matter of economics.
"With a mixture of condes-
cension and envy, he watches the
foreign students'children' who
can cut class with impunity, read
for pleasure, explore wider hori-
zons and seek alternatives.
"Even the girls, who may dab-
ble in chuppahlogy the hunt
for husbands harness their in-
tellectual curiosity in pursuit of
a profession. The Sabra female's
equality is established in nursery
school and confirmed in the
army. 'They' are a mutually ac-
cepted combination of "she and
"Because of his age, respon-
sibilities, and obligations, the
Israeli student cannot afford the
luxury of a four-year escape
from practical reality. Any dif-
ference between the Israeli stu-
dent and society in general is
coincidental. The student is an
integral member of his society,
personally involved in its prob-
lems of making ends meet.
He is caught up in the national
pressure of building a country
surrounded by hostile nations, of
rising inflation, taxation and
"There is little campus life
no fraternities or sororities, no
extracurricular interest clubs
nor intercollegiate games, no
proms and no cheerleaders. Only
a smattering of varsity teams,
such as basketball and judo,
which few students can enjoy in
their daily round of class, work,
family, and study.
"Student unions do exist, of-
fering counseling services, and
organizing various inexpensive
entertainment programs, such as
informal get-togethers, weekend
dances of American rock and Is-
raeli folk music, and going to
the movies. Students like casual
dress and talk on social af-
fairs, school, Army and some
front-page politics. They're 'let-
off-steam sessions'; opinion and
criticism, generating no action.
"The organized reform-seeking
university students, an interna-
tional phenomenon of the past
decade, are absent in Israel. The
Israeli campus lacks a tradition
of opposition. In the '50s, there
was nothing to changethe es-
tablishments of the nation were
just being created. In the '60s,
strength, needed for survival,
would have been weakened by
opposing factions unity was
"Prior to the Fall of '73, there
existed the belief that capable
hands were caring for society,
so the individual was free to
take care of himself. Israelis be-
grudgingly accepted adminis-
trational inefficiency, bother-
some errors, and passing dissen-
sion because of an unquestioned
trust in the ultimate reliability
and wisdom of the leaders of the
Army and government.
"This euphoria was shattered
by the Yom Kippur War. It was
destructive in every respect.
Even victory did not justify the
people's confidence. A credibility
gap emerged. Questions are still
being asked. Answers: tentative,
"There have been no dramatic
upheavals on the campuses in Is-
rael, no solutions, no definite
answers. Many believe that time
will dissipate the frustration as
well as the rumblings of discon-
tent and that students will con-
tinue in their personal passive
world. Others hope the rumbling
will erupt into action. After the
shock, the concerned involve-
ment of academic leadership
might break the quiet on the

are sore, indeed.
And now, wonders of wonders,
as I have already observed,
these are precisely the qualities
in the Maestro, or the lack of
them, that the current hassle is
Or are they?
WHAT I said three years ago,
what I am repeating now, in-
volves a consideration of artis-
try. How does Lombard compare
to other conductors, more ma-
ture, less ambitious for a sec-
ondary career as a matinee idol,
of far greater stature and who
would be delighted to make Mi-
ami their podium if only the
board and the orchestra's presi-
dent knew something about
music and music-making? And
this has nothing to do with
money, either. Maestro Lom-
bard's emolument here has been
outrageous if you study the con-
tractual arrangements of some
of the more august names in the
But the current hassle, if we
are to believe Philharmonic
President Maurice Gusman, and
surely in this instance there is
no reason not to, is really about
THE IDEA being advanced is
that the Maestro was too flam-
boyant in his tastes, and that
his musical and personal flam-
boyancy cost more money than
the Philharmonic could afford.
Of course, for his part, the
Maestro is saying the same
thing of Gusman, adding fillips
of his own about Gusman's al-
leged dictatorial highhandedness.
None of this is unusual. The
struggle between artists and the
bourgeois world they entertain
is a battlefield of corpses on
which lie the bodies of some of
the most distinguished names in
BUT WHAT is unusual is that
we continue to refuse to learn
from the past. In the end, the
question of artistry is only
vaguely a factor in the Miami
In criticizing Lombard's flam-
boyancy, for example, the board
reckons the impact of this on
the orchestra mainly in finan-
cial and hardly in artistic terms.
Seemingly, if there were no
economic crisis, the Philhar-
monic would be delighted to re-
tain him on its podium in the
same way that the community is
delighted with the bizarre col-
lection of hotels and condomini-
ums along its now buried beach-
es as long as private enterprise
finds them really profitable.
Damn the murdered beauty here.
AND AS if to confirm his own
place in this kind of communal
design, that is why Lombard is
offering to stay on free until
things can be set to rights.
Well, they may be set to
bookkeeping rights, but they
will never be set to musical
rights in the Maestro's proposed

here that West Germany will re-
tain its "balanced policy" in the
Middle East in 1975 by continu-

the Palestinian people, as well
as the necessity of recognized
and secure boundaries for Israel.
He stated that Bonn's foreign
policy priority in 1975 would be
the unification of Western Eu-
rope. Nothing would be more
dangerous, he staled in an in-
terview with West German Ra-
dio, than if European develop-
ment were to be retarded be-

Ing nation by its own sweat and through its own
piuity. No entrepeneurs from other lands have come
search for the fertile grounds, to plow the soil,
bw the seeds, to provide the capital. By .contrast,

fwelcomed prospecting, the drilling, the investment

rices humanitarians would applaud;
0 Item 3: When profits do accrue from agri-
hiral advances in the United States, this nation
phes out through such devices as the Marshall Plan
the Peace Corps to help relieve poverty around
world. Some of our profits, indeed, go for the
ef and rehabilitation of refugees.
Item 4: Refugees? Why cannot Dr. Mehdi and
Je for whom he speaks now demonstrate unselfish
jlse by using a sizeable share of oil largesses to
for Arab refugeesthe one enclave among the

now swelling the treasuries of Arab lands are

other Arab states a piece of Western property.

Even now, Arab interests are reliably reported to

From there it's an easy jump to the purchase of

Dr. Mehdi, with his double talk about America's
kocrisy in dealing with food production while com-
ining about the outlandish boost in oil prices by

IN THE same hour, we sorrow because the UN

Political Clout of U.S. Jews
^/HEN JOURNALISTS turn sociologists, their
writings contain interesting and controversial
findings. Stephen D. Isaacs is chief of the New York
Bureau of the Washington Post and served for
many years in the capital
He knows his Washington and many of those
who make it tick. His book, "Jews and American
Politics" (New York, Doubleday and Co., $8.55, 294
pp.) invites reading, study and discussion.
ISAACS ATTEMPTS to answer such anestions
as: Why is the political power and the contributions
of Jews far greater than their numbers? Why do
Jews seldom run for office? And why do so many
work behind the scenes as strategists?
The author's answers are based on interviews
with 200 "leading Jews,'" most of whom are ex-
tremely wealthy and substantial contributors One
of the author's shortcomings as an amateur soci-
ologist is his lack of in-depth knowledge of Judaism
and his failure to make cny new or profound deduc-
tions or observations.
WHEN HE writes of events in Washington, how
the leading Jews operate politically, and who they
are, he is on firm ground.
I. L. Kenen, Richard Perle, Hyman Bookbinder,
Morris J. Amitay and a few others are the iront
men for advancing the interests of Israel.
The book is an excellent primer for an under-
standing of events that move legislation: why Jews
never become "anchor men" for national broadcast-
ing companies: and a comment made by the first
Jewish president of the American Society of News-
paper Editors, "I spent a lifetime being what one
might call a eunuch in the religious sense. It never
occured to me that there were 'Jewish judgments'."
Isaacs notes a difference between assimilation
and the suppression"antiseptic professionalism"
of the Jews in the mass media.
THE INABILITY of McGovern to empathize
with Jews and his almost puerile insistence on
sophomoric populist philosophy is revealed in his
meetings with leading Jews.
The author discusses attitudes of American
Jews toward Israel from the points of contributions,
the exercise of political support of it. and aliyah.
He errs in asserting that there are fewer religious
and ethnic Jews worrying over Israel "than one
sometimes thinks" and in making deductions from
Rabin's 1972 support of Nixon.
He proves that Jewish votes are important be-
cause they vote in a higher percentage than their
proportion of the population.

No RarityA Modest Rabbi
nrnEY TELL about the TV producer who said to
one of his writers: "I want a series about a
family with 'happy problems.'"
Down in North Miami, Fla., Rabbi Ralph Kings-
ley has a "happy problem."
AS HE described it in the bulletin of his syna-
gogue, Temple Sinai of North Dade, the difficulty
he's coping with is the big attendance at his Sab-
bath eve services.
Don't thin kthe rabbi is really complaining. He
recognizes that a large turnout is the answer to
a rabbi's prayers.
What worries Rabbi Kingsley is that he finds
it difficult to perform the gladsome Jewish custom
of welcoming each worshipper.
AND HE is also afraid that some people are
not being greeted either by himself or a special
committee which this fine congregation has fa-
The special committee is called B'nai Noam,
"pleasant people." In his bulletin column, he pleads
with the Noamites not to let anyone be "lost in the
It is true that the Miami area attracts more
people to services than many a non-resort region.
STILL, Rabbi Kingsley has a problem which
would arouse the envy of many another rabbi.
Modestly, he professes not to be able to explain
the fine attendance.
Actually, it's not so much the Miami air that
is responsible, but the eloquence and affability of
a splendid rabbi. Our compliments, Rabbi Kingsley.
IIaim Topol Now Appearing In Film Based On Life Of Galileo
TOPOL, the Israeli actor, was introduced to Holly-
wood nine years ago with his screen portrayal of
*." He rose to world fame with his performance as
in "Fiddler on the Roof," both on the London
and in the filmic adaptation which earned him a
ation for an Academy Award.
le now has completed the motion picture, "Galileo,"
p by the German poet-dramatist, Bertold Brecht,
fled Nazi oppression to work during World War II
JALILEO" was presented by him in an English-
kge adaptation by Joseph Losey and Charles Laugh-
the Hollywood Coronet Theater as a "live" produc-
1947 with Losey also directing and Laughton por-
the title role.
Salileo" tells the story of a 17th century Italian
lomer who dared to reverse contemporary scientific
Tt and ecclesiastic dogma by proving that the sun,
kr earth, is the center of the universe (something
sputed since that time).
I January 17, 1975
By doing so, Galileo Galilei seemingly defied the
Bible and confronted the authority of the Catholic church.
In the eyes of Brecht the non-conformist and revolution-
ary, Galileo finally betrayed both science and society by
recanting under threat of torture and execution.
Dealing with the freedom of thought, the play has
remained timely ever since it was first presented to the
world suffering under the impact of fascism.
ELY LANDAU selected "Galileo" as the first work
to be produced for the screen within the second season of
subscription plays for his American Film Theater.
Joseph Losey also directs the motion picture version
with Sir John Gielgud, Colin Blakely. Georgia Brown,
Margaret Leighton, Michael Londsdale and Edward Fox
(of "Day of the Jackal") joining Topol.
The movie was staged on one large composite set
which suggested locations at Padua, Florence, Venice and
Rome: colors, textures and architectural design to convey
a feeling of the richly phrased baroque period.
The Landau organization, headquartering at Twentieth
Century Fox Studios in Beverly Hills, as in the past,
produced their series for the American Film Theater both
here and abroad. "Galileo" was completed in England; the
second presentation comes from the Studios of France.
IT IS the popular stage revue, "Jacques Brel is Alive
and Well and Living in Paris."
It is an accurate transposition by author Eric Blau
of his own show, with a total of 26 chansons and not one
word of spoken dialogue.
The quartet of thespians consists of Elly Stone, Mbrt
Shuman, Joe Masiell from the original Broadway produc-
tion and Flemish author-composer Jacques Brel intonating
his own songs and blending into the ensemble.
